xterm rebinding of keys

Hi, I would like to rebind keys to strinmsg and functions
in my xterm on SGI

Here is a sample Xdefault
*VT100.Translations: #override <Key>F6: keymap(function)
*VT100.functionKeymap.translations: \
    <Key>F1: insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
    <Key>F2: string("win\n") \n\
    <Key>F3: string("hinv\n") \n\
    <Key>F4: string("netscape\n") \n\
    <Key>F5: string("\023") \n\
    <Key>F6: string("\021") \n\
    <Key>F7: string("\032") \n\
    <Key>F8: string("\003") \n\
    <Key>F9: string("pro-x\n") \n\
    <Key>F10: string("pro-xm\n") \n\
    <Key>F11: string("starid\n") \n\
    <Key>F12: string("starinfo\n") \n\
    <Key>Prior:scroll-back(1,halfpage) \n\
    <Key>Next:scroll-forw(1,halfpage) \n\
    <Key>Insert:insert-selection(PRIMARY,CUT_BUFFER0) \n\

The problem is at present I need to type F6 to activate
the bindings. Is there a better way to do it properly???

Thanks

You could always override each of the selected keys in the same way that you have overridden F6. However, you might prefer to retain some method to return to the default settings, in which case, the above is the method to follow. Note however, that you would need to redefine an additional key which would invoke another keymap function to reset all the above to their original default settings.
